I want some of these bad boys for my army but I don't want to buy the official ones as I'm sick of finecast and I'm not particularly fond of the models themselves. Same goes for the Gamezone equivalents, although in this instance, its because I don't want any heavy, metal models.
Plastic wise, there are the Chaos Knights, Dragon Princes and Bretonnian Knights. Chaos Knights would involve a lot of filling-off iconography and having seen my mates ones, would be annoying to rank up. Dragon Princes are a bit too small and I play against HE's regularly. Finally, I'd rather go for Empire themed knights rather than Bretonnian ones.
I've therefore come up with a few alternate ideas. Horse wise, I could get some of the marauder horses, as they're quite bulky looking, and green stuff some barding on. Or I could get some bretonnian horses and give them Dragon Prince steed heads. For riders, I'm thinkng maybe a mix of Empire Knight/Demigryph riders, Dragon Princes and Cold One Knights and spruce them up with grave guard bits. I'd quite like to give them sallet helmets as well, like the Zombie Dragon rider and I think the cold one lances look particularly elegant yet vicious.
